Monday of Week 7 Year 2

The minds of people are not easy to understand and discover. People can sometimes play games or pretend by putting up a front, hoping that others will not realise who they really are. Even people who appear to be respectable or upright could have a hidden side. There is more than meets the eye for some people, and unless one is very observant, one could be misled by such people.

Today's reading reminds us that "If there are any wise or learned men among you, let them show it by their good lives, with humility and wisdom in their actions." How many of us are genuinely wise or learned? We may have plenty of degrees, doctorates or other qualifications, but does that really make us wise? Sometimes we see such people with so called high qualifications behaving in a manner quite the opposite. Are we living good lives, with humility and wisdom in our actions? Or are we hiding behind our intellect, while in actual fact our hearts remain darkened and cold?
